Wow, it's been a long time

on: October 13, 2006, 12:16:32 am
I'm so glad to see these forums back up & running, even if there are ALOT of old threads that are missing.
You guys help to inspire me so much... lets not have these forums go down again, ok? Thanks. :)
I'll be visiting daily, again, and hopefully once I really get back into pixeling I'll be able to share some of my work with you guys.

When the site went down I was working on some art for a friend of mine, he wanted to add some images to his webgame to make it a bit more fun:


It's not much, but it got me thinking more about my game tht I want to make... my problem mostly is that I'm not good with terrain, as you can probably tell from the image above :P
So I guess I'll be working on trying to make some terrain before I do anything else... /sigh
Again, it's good to see these forums back up, thanks to whoever brought them back!  ;D

Welcome back, Snippa!  In case you haven't noticed, this is a completely different board than the old Pixelation was.  It's running on different architecture, as well as being on a different server.  This forum has been up for about a year and a third, but it was named Pixelopolis until recently, when the board got a graphical facelift and the name changed over.  Anyway, post some art, get some critique, give some critique, and enjoy your stay here at Pixelation.
Always remember: a preposition is not something you should end a sentence with.

Yeah, I agree... I could have done better, and I plan to!

Hi Snippa:

I like the unusual perspective and I'd like to hear more about this game you're developing. Genre? Style? Etc?

Thanks.
The game is an mmorpg, it's mostly just a bunch of scattered ideas at the moment half of them have been written on paper, about a quarter of those ideas have been slightly tested in a text-based web game (stopped working on that due to the fact that I can't do what I want with my game in php :P). Pretty much just alot of new unique ideas mixed with alot of old ideas from other games (such as civilization, ultima online, world of warcraft, and some others).
I don't want to go into too much detail with that...

It will be a top-down Ultima Online style game, I'd prefer it to be in 3D, but I suck with 3D modeling, especially when it comes to texturing :P

Not sure what all you're interested in knowing about it... but it's pretty much still in it's earliest stages, even though I've been working on the ideas for about 3 years now.

The art in the image above though, I've stopped work on since my friend decided to stop work on his game. My mmorpg wont have computers or guns in it :P
